    Talking AK74M coming to life

    I haven't shown any builds in a while and thought I would share my 74M I just finished putting together. It's currently 'mocked up', I still have to spray and bake it then take care of the final touches.
    It's a Bulgarian double rivet 74S converted with a 5.5 pinned Polymer stock. All the appropriate rivets are counter sunk using both Russian or Bulgarian rivets. NDS 2-SF receiver with plate (which is a tad too far forward)
    Overall I am very happy with the results, and expect it to feel right at home with its brethren.

    Seeing you're in Texas, I assume you mean that you are using the Russian 5.5mm diameter trunnion hinge block.

    "Pinned" stocks are for Kommifornia and New Jerky

    Trivia:
    Q: Does anyone know the difference between the AK-74N and AK-74M?
    A: They are the same, with the exception of the side optics rail on the AK-74M.
